    Did not know that Sir Gregory..the wife thingy. Williams was my and not quite sure, your generations Crosby, Como, King Cole et al, oh so smooth “crooner”. An outstanding vocal artist. Had an Uncle Tony, wonderful and talented member of the Siracusa family.. My Mother’s maiden name. Unc’ was a member of the Rochester New York Philharmonic. While he was alive, I did learn an appreciation for all genres of music, even though he did WINCE at the new and exciting THING, called ROCK, that was about to EXPLODE..lol

    He made the theme from Love Story his own, and the standard by which all other versions are measured.
    As I recall though, just around the time he recorded this, his wife was living with another man (who she later shot and killed accidentally). Another example perhaps of an artist transcending private pain by letting it flow through his work.
